Paul Slater
Vice-President, Health & Safety at GEMS Education

The safety and wellbeing of our students and school communities is unquestionably our number one priority. GEMS Education has 60 years’ experience of delivering the highest standards in Health and Safety across our schools, reflected in ‘outstanding’ and ‘very good’ ratings by education authorities in our annual Health and Safety inspections.

Unlike other schools, GEMS has a dedicated team of senior Health and Safety experts who have been diligently planning to ensure that our schools are ready to re-open in the new academic year, or whenever advised by the UAE authorities, in the safest way possible. On a daily basis we monitor and research the latest technologies and best practices, as schools around the world begin to re-open.

We have carried out deep cleaning and sanitisation programs throughout the current school closure period and have implemented medical and emergency procedures that meet and exceed both UAE and global standards.

Our school teams are prepared, trained and ready to welcome back our students into our safe and inclusive school environments when we are permitted to do so.
